Pete Davidson & Miley Cyrus Reveal They Got Matching Tattoos: ‘We Thought It Would Be Great’

Miley Cyrus and Pete Davidson are set to co-host an epic New Years' Eve special in Miami for NBC -- and they stopped by to chat about it on Jimmy Fallon's show!

Miley Cyrus, 28, and Pete Davidson, 28, are one co-hosting duo we can get behind. The Disney alum and Saturday Night Live star dropped by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon where they hilariously revealed they once got matching tattoos after working together on the NBC sketch series. It all started in 2017 after the two appeared in the “The Baby Step” sketch, which Pete claims as one of his great ideas. “It was a very dark time in our lives…for me personally,” Pete jokingly said, revealing that the ink read, “We Babies.”

“We dressed as babies — everything seemed fun and fine,” Miley began, as Pete interjected to explain that it was for a sketch where they were rapping babies. “We made this SNL sketch…trap babies. One of the many brilliant ideas that I bring to the SNL table!” Larry David then spotted the two and asked what was going on — prompting them to respond, “We babies!” Miley and Pete then thought that would make for a “great tattoo.” Pete then had his “tattoo guy” come to 30 Rock, and the artist was “so excited” to ink them.

“I burned mine off and you still have yours!” Pete then revealed. Miley admitted she had no idea Pete had his removed until she watched a Smart Water commercial. “I was like, ‘wait a minute, that’s where ‘We Babies’ was…I still have mine on my ankle,” she added up, pulling up her pants. “I stopped smoking weed the next day,” the singer hilariously added, referencing the night in 2017 they got the tattoos!

The “Wrecking Ball” singer teased the upcoming appearance with an outtake from a photoshoot with Pete earlier this week. Miley sported a sexy black dress with a high slit as she cozied up to a dressier than usual Pete, who was dapper in a black tuxedo. “BIG DEBUT ENERGY…Pete & I are official! CO-HOSTS that is! Watch @fallontonight,” she wrote. ‘Our first show together as a pair! We’ll be talking about #MileysNewYearsEveParty hosted by US in Miami!” she added.

Earlier in the day, Pete was seen arriving to the NBC studio building wearing a matching sweatsuit from his close friend Machine Gun Kelly‘s latest merch line. The 28-year-old, who has been dating Kim Kardashian, 41, appeared to be in good spirits as he flashed a peace sign at photographers while holding onto a large iced coffee from Dunkin’.

Miley will be joined by Pete for the upcoming Miley’s New Years Eve Party special, which is set to air Dec. 31 on NBC and Peacock. The show, produced by SNL showrunner Lorne Michaels, will also include performances from other yet-to-be confirmed talent. “In what is sure to be an exciting and fun evening, we are looking forward to partnering with Lorne Michaels and ringing in 2022 with a night of incredible entertainment, led by Miley and Pete.” said Jen Neal, Executive Vice President, Live Events, Specials and E! News, NBCUniversal, when the show was announced.
